Multi-Sport Program

February 10 - June 15

One of Manitoba’s Best Sports Programs is Back and Better Than Ever!!

First launched in 2019, our Multi-Sport Program partnered with Speed Skating, Cross-Country Ski and Cycling to provide exposure to four different endurance sports over four months of programming.

For 2024, we’ve made the program better in two ways:
A Fifth Sport and fifth month of training has been added to the mix
– We’ve expanded the age range so the program is now offered to Teens and Adults too!

Here are all the details:

Goal: Provide participants with introductory exposure to a variety of sport for life and endurance training activities, opening the door to cross training opportunities for potential multi-sport athletes.

Delivery: Program delivery will involve five periods, each assigned to a specific sport as follows:

  • 8 – 12 age group – 10:15 to 11:15 am
  • 13 – 17 age group – 11:30 am to 12:30 pm
NOTE – exact hours may change to accommodate the venue for each sport.

 

Equipment: Program participants will need to have continued access to a mountain bike (in good working condition) and certified helmet for this program. It is also important they have suitable clothing for outdoor exercise during the winter months.

Equipment requirements for each phase will be as follows:

  • Speed Skating – Helmet and appropriate clothing.
    Skates will be provided for those that don’t have their own.
  • Cross-Country Skiing & Biathlon – Appropriate clothing.
    Skis, boots, and poles will be provided for those that don’t have their own.  Biathlon shooting equipment is provided for all.

The Hecla Triathlon will take place in Hecla, Manitoba, July 20th, 2024.  This race started in 2015 and has continued to grow and evolve each year since, and is home to Manitoba’s only Long Course race.

​The event is a popular destination race and may also have you feeling like your are somewhere outside of Manitoba.  This year’s Long Course Triathlon; Standard & Long Course Aquabike will all be World Qualifer events, where the top age group female and male athletes can make their way onto the Canadian Age Group World Championship Team, for the 2025 Multisport World Championships held in Pontevedra, Spain.

The Hecla Triathlon will not disappoint, with tremendous athlete support to ensure the day goes smoothly!

About the Hecla Triathlon

  • The swim course is protected by the marina, guarding from what can be an unpredictable Lake Winnipeg, with only a short run to transition T1.
  • The bike course is flat and fast, lock and load, and keep your eyes open for wildlife!
  • Moving onto the run, you will experience both road and trail, skirting the marina and hugging the lake.
  • This course will provide you both a physically and mentally challenging race, packed with stunning views, showcasing the beauty of the island.
To be eligible for World Championship Qualification in the Olympic Distance event, you must complete an Expression of Interest PRIOR to the event on July 20th.  That expression must be submitted within the three weeks prior to the event – a link to do so will be added to this page from June 25 onward.


Olympic Men’s Triathlon

July 30 @ 1:00 am - 3:30 am

It may not be an event taking place in Manitoba, but it’s certainly a race we’ll all be invested in, as Oak Bluff’s Tyler Mislawchuk tackles his third Olympic Games.

The men’s individual race is scheduled to run from 8:00 to 10:30 am CET, which means a 1:00 am start for viewers in Manitoba.

CBC continues as Canada’s official Olympic broadcast partner and we’ll update this page with information on how to watch (or record – it’s okay) the men’s triathlon event as it nears.


Olympic Women’s Triathlon

July 31 @ 1:00 am - 3:40 am

Because we don’t always need a Manitoban involved for a race to inspire (jump to 2:03 in the linked video if you’ve never seen the 2012 race), it’s always worth watching the race and connecting with the amazing stories on our sport’s biggest stage.

The women’s individual race is scheduled to run from 8:00 to 10:40 am CET, which means a 1:00 am start for viewers in Manitoba.

CBC continues as Canada’s official Olympic broadcast partner and we’ll update this page with information on how to watch the women’s triathlon event as it nears.

 

 


August 2024

Peace Garden Triathlon

August 3 - August 4
Peace Gardens, 10939 Highway 281
Boissevain, MB R0K 0E0 Canada

The best course in Manitoba isn’t actually in Manitoba*

With amazing support from the Race Director and Peace Garden staff, we’re looking forward to this race’s fourth running.

If you haven’t yet been out to the Peace Garden event, you’re missing something truly special.  Triathlon takes over the Garden for one weekend a year, with participants enjoying the most amazing triathlon playground you could imagine.  Even the campground is a dream.

Need more convincing?  Check out Photos from Last Year’s Event.

The Mixed Relay returns for 2024, while last year’s introduction of an Olympic distance event stays on the schedule too, for two days of incredible racing.

“What is a Mixed Relay” you ask?  “Um, it’s like only the coolest thing to happen in sports this decade!”
Seriously, it doesn’t matter which sport you choose, Mixed Relays are Awesome!  In triathlon, they involve four racers, each doing a shorter swim/bike/run race, then handing off to the next member of their team.  Here’s what it looks like for Triathlon – also note the bonus points for Tyler’s greatest beach dive of all time!**

What makes it better still at the Peace Garden?  You get to choose your team – family, friends, fastest people you know or funniest people you know, pick the team you want to be on.  The course distance for each relay leg is suitable for ages 12 and up, so even younger families can compete.  One of you doesn’t swim – that’s fine too, just get someone else to swim twice.  Four little triathlons, however you want to do it – that’s the Mixed Relay!

“Won’t Someone Think of the Children!”

While past years of this event featured a stand-alone Kids of Steel Duathlon, the numbers were low and the volunteer demands to set up a separate course and transition zone were substantial.  Most of the participating athletes were also old enough to take part in the Mixed Relay event too (as many did).  This year, we’re encouraging our younger athletes to compete in the mixed relay.

The mixed relay course is a similar distance to those used for 12 & older Kids of Steel races.  The course features a challenging bike and deep water swim, so it’s not a course we’d recommend for a younger athlete’s first triathlon participation, but most athletes that age or older should be comfortable competing.  Because this is the final event on our race calendar before the MB Summer Games, we can also allow qualified 10-11 year old athletes to participate at this distance, but ask that you contact our office first to discuss participation options for your younger athlete.

“Day Two – This Time It’s Personal”

Day two features individual racing, with triathlon and duathlon options, over the Sprint or Olympic distances.  You’ll know the swim, bike and run terrain quite well from hopefully having raced the day prior, which means you can enjoy the challenge of a few more km in this beautiful venue and maybe even push yourself to a new level.

However you decide to participate, we’re pretty sure you won’t find a better way to spend August long weekend than racing and playing the International Peace Garden.

If you have someone who isn’t a strong swimmer or with a running injury, they can give that leg of the race to someone else.  If you want to race with only three atheletes, it just means you all need to do a bit more.

 

* – While the International Peace Garden isn’t in Manitoba or Canada, it isn’t in the US either.  You’ll exit Canadian Customs, but you never pass through US Customs.  It’s sort of like a duty free area at an airport.  You’ll need a passport or other suitable ID to return to Canada, but that’s it.

** – That’s a professional athlete on a closed course.  Do NOT try that at home!


Olympic Triathlon Mixed Relay

One of the best things added to sport in the past decade has been mixed relays.  Is there any better way to judge a nation’s strength than to race a combined teams of each country’s top men and women against the World?

Triathlon’s mixed relay event is scheduled to run from 8:00 to 10:10 am CET, which means a 1:00 am start for viewers in Manitoba.

CBC continues as Canada’s official Olympic broadcast partner and we’ll update this page with information on how to watch the mixed relay event as it nears.

Riding Mountain “Dry Tri” Duathlon

August 17
Riding Mountain National Park, 135 Wasagaming Dr
Onanole, Manitoba R0J 1N0 Canada

Riding Mountain Triathlon is a premier destination multi-sport event on the prairies. Located in beautiful Riding Mountain National Park, where out of the never-ending wheat fields emerges one of Canada’s best-kept secrets.

The event has long been a highlight of the Triathlon Manitoba season, but the 2024 event will need to take on a different format, as explained in this important note from the organizer:

***This year we are dealing with regulations and National orders protecting the National Park from the Threat of Zebra muscles, and the potential damage they pose to the clear lake ecosystem. Due to this potential threat, the swim is not allowed this year, and we will be hosting a duathlon event, with all the usual pizzaz and SWAG of the normal race, with the return to the aim to return to the swim in 2025. *** 

Price adjustments have been made; entry fees have decreased.

Riding Mountain Kids of Steel

August 18
Riding Mountain National Park, 135 Wasagaming Dr
Onanole, Manitoba R0J 1N0 Canada

Riding Mountain Kids of Steel Triathlon is a premier destination multi-sport event on the prairies. Located in beautiful Riding Mountain National Park, where out of the never-ending wheat fields emerges one of Canada’s best-kept secrets.

The multi-sport weekend is designed to introduce kids to the exciting sport of triathlon. Kids having a great experience at races will develop the “love of the sport” and continue it into the future.

In November 2023, Parks Canada officials reported live zebra mussels in Clear Lake at Boat Cove, Riding Mountain National Park. The discovery prompted the search for evidence that there might be more zebra mussels somewhere in Clear Lake. This discovery may impact this event. Further updates are expected shortly.
